Monthly Inspections:

California Title 19 Fire Code requires an inspection of your extinguishers every month. This requires a visual inspection of all components including pressure gauge, cylinder condition, location, tag verification, etc. A detailed report of the inspection can be provided by Fire Safety First to ensure that your Fire extinguishers are up to code.
Annual Maintenance:

An inspection of every fire extinguisher is required per California Title 19 Fire Code. This service has to be performed by a professional licensed by the California State Fire Marshall. This service includes a thorough examination of the three basic elements of a fire extinguisher: mechanical parts, extinguishing agent, and expelling means.

Internal Maintenance and Hydrostatic Testing:

Most fire extinguishers require an internal maintenance every 6-years and hydrostatic test every 12-years. The most common types are ABC, halon and halotron. Other types of extinguishers such as CO2, Class K, etc. require a different internal examination and testing intervals. These services have to be performed by a professional licensed by the California State Fire Marshall.

Our training is tailored to address the specific needs of your type of business.

Emergency lights and exit signs are designed to provide the necessary illumination and direction in case of a power outage or any other emergency that requires the occupants to safely evacuate the building.

The National Fire Protection Association NFPA 101 Life Safety Code, Code of Federal Regulation (CFR), and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) – Department of Labor – require the following inspection and testing for emergency lights and exit signs:
